  • After a quick length, Wendy lumbered over and sprawled on top of a sun lounger 
  • Guests are warned against feeding Wendy and to stay at least six feet from her  

This is the adorable moment that a sea lion decides to take a dip in a hotel pool and then steals a guest’s sunbed.

In the footage captured by a guest, Wendy can be seen struggling up some steps from the sea and then taking a dip in the pool.

But Wendy did not stop there and after a brief swim, climbed out of the pool having washed the salt water away and lumbered onto a sun lounger to the bemusement of tourists at the exclusive resort – including one man who was forced to scamper away when the sea lion decided she was going to rest on his chair. 

Tourists at the resort are told that Wendy is a regular visitor and are asked to remain at least six feet away. 

They are also warned not to touch or feed Wendy or the cub. 

Locals say Wendy and her pup can spend several hours sleeping on the sun loungers. 

One witness, who filmed a recent visit said: ‘The animals here are so respected and loved – everyone is asked to keep a 6-foot distance from them and absolutely no touching or feeding them. 

‘I took this video while sitting on our balcony. 

‘My husband and I were in the Galápagos for our honeymoon.’
